In line with its tradition of defending contemporary art and modern creation, Air France has decided to once again team up with New York-born painter/graffiti artist JonOne of Dominican origin, famous for his totally original fusion of street art and painting.
On 10 November 2015, at the heart of Air France Industries’ hangars at Paris-Orly, the Company will unveil this giant accent measuring 4 metres by 7 metres on a Boeing 777 equipped with the Company’s latest new long-haul travel cabins in the presence of JonOne. This exceptional work of art represents the French flag and symbolizes freedom, one of the values held dear by France and the artist alike, while echoing the company’s slogan: Air France, France is in the Air.
The aircraft, sporting this exceptional livery, will then fly off for the first time to New York, a legendary city for two reasons – for the artist, who was born there, and for Air France, which has made it a historic route. This will be an opportunity for JonOne to meet Air France customers and tell them all about his original work of art. The aircraft will serve Air France’s global network for one year. This exclusive event has been made possible with the support of Boeing.
On arrival in New York, the artist will sign another exclusive new work of art for Air France, which can be seen early 2016 in the Company’s lounge located in Terminal 1 at New York-JFK Airport, exclusively reserved for La Première, Business and Flying Blue Elite Plus customers.
In December 2015, on airfranceshopping.com a selection of exclusive items with the Air France accent redesigned by JonOne (notebooks, tote bags and models of the Air France Boeing 777) will be available.
